Welcome to Maldives

Between May and November it's still warm, but the skies can be cloudy, humidity is higher and rain is more likely. This is the low season, and there are fewer tourists and prices are lower. The transition months of November and April are said to be associated with increased water clarity and better visibility for divers.

There is a considerable variation of climate between Northern and Southern atolls in the Maldives. In the south the rainfall is greater but so are the numbers of rain days. Showers are not as heavy as in the North. There are extremes of temperatures in the North also, as the seasons are more evident further away from the Equator.

Because the Maldives actually straddles the equator, the climate is tropical, with no major seasonal differences. Though the southwest monsoon does bring most of the rain, mostly around June and July, tropical rain showers can occur at any time. Normally, the skies are clear and the sun shines brightly, while cooling sea breezes waft through the islands.

Maldives, the "last paradise on earth", is a virgin tropical island with white sands, blue skies, lovely palm trees, clear waters and brilliant turquoise lagoons. This is a tiny nation in the middle of the Indian Ocean to the South west of India consisting of 1200 tiny coral islands. The country is mostly visited for adventurous sports like Scuba diving, Windsurfing the fabulous Coral Reefs and the wealth of Marine Life.
